In the documentary section, Balkan΄s partcipation is strong as out of the 17 documentaries which are selected, eight are Greek and one is Serbian. Nona(The Godmother) by Stelios Kouloglou, Unplugged by Mladen Kovacevic, Playing with Fire by Anneta Papathanasiou, Yusef΄s Song by Kostas Pliakos and Les Ailes de Patmos by Vicky Vellopoulou are some of them.
As for the short film section, Greece is on with fourteen participations. Between the films, we meet Nicoleta by Sonia Liza Kenterman, The Noose by Vassilis Loules and Washingtonia by Konstantina Kotzamani.

Feature films will be screened at the Municipal School of Skala in a specially designed open air cinema of 350 seats, while there will be screenings of documentaries and short films at the Old School of Hora. In the same area, a children΄s film is organised for the festival΄s little friends , whose profits will be donated for the school΄s conservation.

This year, as part of the program, it will be a tribute to four women filmmakers, entitled “Women΄s Cinema”, who will come to Patmos to talk about their work and the challenges they face in their profession. Furthermore, the program includes a tribute to Musical Documentaries, a selection of the best short films submitted to IFFP 2014, many of which have been awarded at the biggest film festivals worldwide and a series of workshops related to the script and the production, which will be organised by Greek and international acknowledged professionals at the Hotel Patmos Aktis and will be open to the public.

Last year, it΄s been the first attempt to provide mentorship and development to young filmmakers by producing the successful documentary “Life in the Borderlands”. Once more, the festival continues the dedication by organising this year a short film script writing contest, called FADE IN. The number of submissions surpassed expectations, garnering over 400 scripts and providing a clear picture of the young filmmaker΄s talent and will. The five finalists will travel to Patmosfor the final part of the competition, in order to win the full support and funding of their movie by OTE TV and SugarHigh Films.
